Welcome to Gladiator Model Kits.  We are a specialist ''O'' Gauge, 7mm, 1:43 manufacturer. We produce a large range of high quality products suitable for the beginner right the way through to the experienced model builder.

Thank you to everyone who came and said 'Hello' to us at Telford.

We have now most of the range of locomotive kits in stock and expect the full range to be available by the end of this year. We will then concentrate on reintroducing the other rolling stock. 

The LBSCR ballast wagon test build is complete and we will have this in production this year. 

The missing tools for the N8/N9 loco have been found so this kit will be available later this year.

The modified firebox for the Duchess locos is progressing well and the kits will be back in stock soon.

Purchases made through this website can be made by credit or debit card. If you wish to pay by bank transfer, cheque or cash please email or phone us. We regret that we cannot accept credit or debit card payments by phone or mail. 

We have received many requests concerning the sale of components. We are happy to do so and are building up stocks. When catalogued we will update this site to show what is available, but if there are specific parts that you require, please let us know.

We have updated the section on instruction copies.

We are still  looking for photos of completed models to use as artwork on the boxes and on this site. If you would like your model to be used, please let us know.

Our locomotive, coach and wagon kits are mainly supplied in 18 thou brass etches with most frames and valve gear in 28 or 22 thou nickel-silver etches. All boilers are supplied pre-rolled and full instructions are included. Castings are lost wax brass and nickel-silver and whitemetal. We also offer a large range of lost wax brass, lost wax nickel-silver, white metal and turned parts for customers who wish to scratch build or indeed upgrade products from other manufacturers.

Wheels, pick-ups, paint, gear sets and motors are not included in our kits.
